    What age will you be able to tell the Cockeral chicks from the hen chicks?

    Thanks :)

    I go by comb and wattle development which varies with different breeds. Small varieties can be sexed sooner. My serama between 4-5 weeks.
    Bigger breeds a bit longer.

    Ok. My Rhodies will take a bit longer because they are a bigger breed.

    Thanks ;)
